Matthew 9-1021st Century King James Version (KJ21)
9 And He entered into a boat, and passed over and came into His own city.
2 And behold, they brought to Him a man sick with the palsy, lying on a bed. And Jesus, seeing their faith, said unto the one sick with the palsy, “Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.”
3 And behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, “This man blasphemeth.”
4 And Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why think ye evil in your hearts?
5 For which is easier: to say, ‘Thy sins be forgiven thee,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk’?
6 But that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins,”— (then said He to the one sick with palsy) “Arise, take up thy bed and go unto thine house.”
7 And he arose and departed to his house.
8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power unto men.
9 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, He saw a man named Matthew, sitting in the customhouse. And He said unto him, “Follow Me.” And he arose and followed Him.
10 And it came to pass as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto His disciples, “Why eateth your master with publicans and sinners?”
12 But when Jesus heard that, He said unto them, “They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
13 But go ye and learn what this meaneth: ‘I will have mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
14 Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Thy disciples fast not?”
15 And Jesus said unto them, “Can the attendants of the bridechamber mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
16 “No man putteth a piece of new cloth upon an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse.
17 Neither do men put new wine into old wineskins, else the wineskins burst and the wine runneth out and the skins perish. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
18 While He spoke these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler and worshiped Him, saying, “My daughter is even now dead, but come and lay Thy hand upon her, and she shall live.”
19 And Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples.
20 And behold, a woman who was diseased with an issue of blood for twelve years came up behind Him and touched the hem of His garment;
21 for she said to herself, “If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole.”
22 But Jesus turned about, and when He saw her, He said, “Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.” And the woman was made whole from that hour.
23 And when Jesus came into the ruler’s house and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
24 He said unto them, “Give way, for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth.” And they laughed Him to scorn.
25 But when the people were put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.
26 And the fame thereof went abroad throughout all the land.
27 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed Him, crying and saying, “Thou Son of David, have mercy on us!”
28 And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him, and Jesus said unto them, “Believe ye that I am able to do this?” They said unto Him, “Yea, Lord.”
29 Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith, be it unto you.”
30 And their eyes were opened, and Jesus strictly charged them, saying, “See that no man know it.”
31 But they, when they had departed, spread abroad His fame in all that country.
32 As they went out, behold, they brought to Him a man, dumb and possessed with a devil.
33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spoke; and the multitudes marveled, saying, “It was never so seen in Israel.”
34 But the Pharisees said, “He casteth out the devils through the prince of the devils.”
35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were faint and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then said He unto His disciples, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few.
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.”
10 And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: the first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth and commanded them, saying, “Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not.
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.’
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils. Freely ye have received; freely give.
9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor brass in your purses,
10 nor pack for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his meat.
11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till ye go thence.
12 And when ye come into a house, salute it,
13 and if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
15 Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city.
16 “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues,
18 and ye shall be brought before governors and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak, for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child; and the children shall rise up against their parents and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated by all men for My name’s sake, but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another; for verily I say unto you, ye shall not have gone through the cities of Israel till the Son of Man be come.
24 “The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household!
26 Fear them not therefore, for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, and hid that shall not be known.
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light; and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
28 And fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him that is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
29 “Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear ye not, therefore; ye are of more value than many sparrows.
32 “Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father who is in Heaven.
33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father who is in Heaven.
34 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to ‘set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.’
36 And ‘a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.’
37 He that loveth father or mother more than Me, is not worthy of Me. And he that loveth son or daughter more than Me, is not worthy of Me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross and followeth after Me, is not worthy of Me.
39 He that findeth his life, shall lose it; and he that loseth his life for My sake, shall find it.
40 “He that receiveth you, receiveth Me; and he that receiveth Me, receiveth Him that sent Me.
41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man, shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only, in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.”
